Default Convertible Top/NY-NJ Shop recommendations?

I know this is a doable DIY, but time is tight and if i can find a reputable place that won't bend me over on price - it'd be worth it for me to have it done.
I was going to do myself over the winter, but now a 3inch tear has become more like a 6inch diameter hole...duct tape isn't cutting it.

Looking for a place (or even a person) who's reputable, won't kill me on price, and knows the nuances of our tops so I don't end up w/ a leak/damaged top/etc...

If such a place/person exists, please let me know...I'm in zip code 10308 and can go just about any reasonable distance.
If it's just a DIY'er who's known/willing, I'm totally open to that and would probably trust him over just a general shop that's never done a Miata.

Thanks in advance guys!

PS--already have a Robbins top w/ rails that I just need install!

I would try 3miatafamily on Clubroadster. He is the president of the nutmeg miata club based in southern CT and i am pretty sure he does installs on the side. I personally haven't used him but i just don't know who else to recommend. I'm sure you can find a good upholstery shop to do it but they are usually expensive and don't specialize in any certain makes.

They take about a day to install working slowly, really not that hard. I have done two now and would offer to help, but I don't have the free time at the moment.

3miatafamily is a good guy. He is also over on and knows these cars inside and out. I would get in touch with him.
